Egg


Published 2003


This animated short tells the tale of a young caveman, Bud Buddy, who comes across a small tortoise. Naming it Tortoo, Bud is totally unaware that the evil Dr K also has an eye on his new pet, and of the sinister reasons why.

Produced on a shoestring budget, this lively short was shot entirely in a loft. Nevertheless, it features an original score and voice acting.

Subject: Four Star plus or minus ? - Thanks for posting
I somewhat agree with previous reviewer regarding pace and cutting table but, in the end, I was still glad I watched it. Enjoyed it. I dont view a lot of clay mation but I may use this one somewhere on my site at act1nowplaying.tv Thank you again for posting.

Reviewer: kerriganm - - September 16, 2009
Subject: Cute, nice scenery, poor pacing
Given a strong hand at the cutting table, this could become a cute little film. But the pacing is VERY slow, making it hard to enjoy. Less is more.
